Love this lovely eco garden shed, designed by Washington gardener Lisa Phipps using mostly recycled materials, spotted over at Sunset, and further explored on their blog Fresh Dirt.


Phipps used lots of salvaged materials and architectural pieces, including an old Ferris wheel chair for a loveseat, to create this very special space in the garden. I am Jealous (with a capital "J").

Read more about this lovely garden shed here and here.

I've been thinking a lot about creating personal spaces at home—so important for mamas especially. But wow, to create a special space with lots of creative reusing and repurposing too. Even better!
